The Importance of Radiative Corrections

  • M. Veltman
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 233)


I did not invent the title of this talk. It was invented by the Organising Committee. I thought it was a bit funny because everyone who is here must know why they are working on radiative corrections. It seems the oddest place to have to explain why radiative corrections are important. Also most of you have probably spent more time than I have recently on the subject. So what do I do? I am sure you do not want me to talk on very technical matters.
